Extensions in GNOME 45

Right, thanks for the advice, I am tempted to switch to KDE to avoid this issue…

I know, I changed my mind and accepted my fate…will upgrade and see…

I have verified that the extensions I’m using are almost ready for 45…Screenshot tool is the only exception .


This is my current list. I turned off validation - I probably won’t go to 45 for a month or two after anyways.

Interesting mix…I’ve been working with the Desktop Icons NG developer for a while now & his was ready almost right after the announcement— You can see I use quite a few of fmuellner extensions—he does “authorized” extensions & they are all ready to go also. I can live without Screenshot Tool for a while—it just adds a quick menu to Gnome Screenshot.

I’ll say that DashtoDock seems to have memory leaks (in my case) & DashfromDock is just that—nothing else…I do have the way to reduce the stock icon size—it was HUGE on my screen & he showed the code area to change. Easy to talk to the developer.

So, I’m ready for Gnome 45!

I didn’t have the dock until just recently.

So far I can’t tell of any memory leaks

Can we say - new tiling extension? Can you say built in Pop shell? I’m very interested to try out the new gnome 45 tiling asap. It sure looks promising to me.

Current Fedora release is scheduled 10/24. It’s usually a few weeks after that. I’d expect mid to late November.

And it works fine so far. My main extension are already updated for gnome45:


Isnt that coming with gnome 46? What is the “new tiling” in gnome 45?

The only broken extension from official repository is gnome-shell-extension-appindicator. See: https://archlinux.org/packages/extra/any/gnome-shell-extension-appindicator/

Compatible version with Gnome 45 is version 57.

Have you tried pop tiling yet? That’s the most important one for me personally, but I haven’t tried yet. I’ve been meaning to do a vmi just haven’t gotten there yet.

Me too… :wink:

extra-testing/gnome-shell 1:45.0-1 (gnome) [installed]

Edit: Doesn’t show Gnome version?
Edit: Finally it shows now.


I’m there also…

Wow that using a bit of memory. :wink: I know you got lots.

I’m also running BOINC…it takes a big chunk of my available…at times I’ll see 75% memory usage. Big Science…big usage… Right now, one of the BOINC applications is using over 3G of memory…

I do not tried it. I’m not a big fan of tiling window managers.

Some news: gnome-shell-extension-appindicator version 57 hits extra-testing repository.

See https://archlinux.org/packages/extra-testing/any/gnome-shell-extension-appindicator/

Sounds like it will be another boring update then.
